While on this subject, I have a problem where pBurn might be able to address.

I have a multi-session DVD which has a folder "/boot/grub". I want to copy a single file into that DVD's folder.

Can pBurn do this? Or can GROWISOFS do this? Or, is it advised to create a file in a HDD folder, /boot/grub/singleFile, and copy that folder to the multi-session disc? Or ...?

Thanks in advance for insight.


Quote:

to create a file in a HDD folder, /boot/grub/singleFile, and copy that folder to the multi-session disc


1) Make a identical path on some directory..
/home/gcmartin/project/boot/grub
2) Copy the file(s) on that directory. ex: "log.txt"
3) Burn the compilation with growisofs calling, /home/gcmartin/project as a source. (Not /home/gcmartin/project/boot/grub/log.txt)
4) The final result is "log.txt" inside on /boot/grub on you multisession disk.

---------
You can use the Pburn editor, to create /boot .. and /boot/grub folders... + files, and burn them. It would be the same operation.
---------

Cautions: You need to know the previous session mkisofs parameters. If your disk was manually built using newer versions of Pburn, that information is saved inside. If you use growisofs command, you need to put it manually.

Cautions: Booteable multisession disks, i'm not sure, if it requires more parameters.

There isn't more ways to add files on iso multisession disks.
If you have the main project on ISO image, you can remaster it before, and then burn it in one track.

Having some trouble with PBurn and a particular drive. Specifics here --> http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=91345

It's probably best to offer help, info, etc., in the linked thread rather than here.

These numbers are obteined, by

Code:
dvd+rw-mediainfo <path>
echo $?


And, the correct numbers are:

0 : DVD or BD inside.
252 : No compatible medium, no dvd/bd structure.. (and always is referenced to CD/CDRW cases).
251 : Empty drive, or open tray.
150 : Incompatible device (ex: /dev/sda)
130 : Invalid device path (ex: /dev/cuak)

Now, there is only one thing that cddetect does. It defines an audio-CD.
dvd+rw-mediainfo outputs 252 for both data/audio CD.

I tried to use cd-info, but I am not able to skip the track detection, even if -T attribute should let me to. My assumption was that
Code:
cd-info --no-tracks --no-analyze --no-cddb --dvd
should give me info quickly, but no go.


Any thoughts?
Sigmund

Some more investigation...
The audio-CD detection can be done otherwise. It does not require a superfast detection, since it is only done once, when status is changed. cd-info can do this just fine.

More important is the nice feedback of cddetect that drive is spinning/scanning the disc. This can be a rather long time on several devices. And of course if the media is scratched. It is always nice to give feedback to the user that things are going on...
...Yes, you can hear the disc spin, but is everything Ok?

Is there a way or setting in Pburn to combine a batch of files as if to burn them as a DVD, and then just produce the processed file? It's a waste to burn a batch of files to DVD for the purpose of ripping the combined video as a single file to the hard drive. Can someone make a combining program that uses Pburn's processing to simply produce a single combined media file?

I am not sure I understand exactly what you think of, but pBurn offers some solutions.

First the easy way:


Now, if this didn't match your request, you can control pBurn fully from the advanced tab in the Burn-Options dialog.
Activate it by the checkbox.
The bottom field executes the actual burning, while the top-field contains the pre-burn commands. Here you can do whatever pleases you.
My red-commented line should be removed to avoid burning. Instead you can copy the dvdauthor output as set by the -o switch.
For me it would be
Code:
cp /mnt/sdb1/tmp/pburn-DVD $HOME
to keep the DVD files in my home directory. /mnt/sdb1/tmp/pburn-DVD will be deleted by pBurn after execution.

Hey, I've got kind of a quandary here.

I've got Pburn 4.0.5, as built into X-Slacko 1.1. I have a DOS game that I want to transfer to a *really* old system, a 486 laptop that someone recently gave me. At least one of the game files is 8meg so I can't stuff it on a floppy Sad

The 486 laptop came with a real-SCSI CD-ROM drive that I've managed to get to work somehow. Actually, that drive is kinda the problem itself.

It's a 2x speed drive.

Regular options in Pburn let me /select/ a burn speed of 2x, but when I actually go to burn, it thinks it's smarter than I am and ups things to 4x which that old heap drive won't read.

For various reasons, obtaining an upgraded drive is not going to happen.

Is there a way to force Pburn 4.0.5 to actually burn at 2x speed, so that it won't second-guess me?

The trouble with overriding the speed detected by cdrecord has been an issue as long as I have worked with pBurn. It could be that I lack knowledge, so I would be very happy if someone stepped in and told how this could be solved.

Like many other burning options, setting the speed depends on both the hardware and the driver. A quick internet-search tells that you are not alone. Manual speed setting doesn't work on my system either.

Wow, didn't realize it was that big of a problem Laughing that's interesting.

I think you might have to even override the firmware on the drive itself; that came up in a few posts I saw in doing research myself. Not sure if that sort of trickery is possible tho.

Last versions of this excellent program I used (4.0.5 & 3.7.1Cool auto-ejected CD / DVD after blanking. Doesn't happen with 4.3.4. Auto-eject after burning still OK.

Good to hear - it works as expected.
Most likely, you want pBurn to write some data to the same disc afterwards...
